ordered thanks h and r

Great price, although personally I was really disappointed by the album; kids and waiting to pretend are ace, but the rest is completely different imho.

Eh!?! Waiting to pretend!? Think you need to give it a second listen. Electric Feel is a top tune.

I agree, this was over hyped and doesn't live up to expectations - however for £2.99 i'll be buying it to add to my collection!

Dont understand why someone would want to buy an over-hyped and "doesnt live up to expectations" cd just to put on their shelf. Is that what music is about to you?

You really do not have a clue, do you? Bet you've got Celine Dion on that "3 or 4 good tracks" cd tower.

drug induced music but brilliant

I'm not gonna get sucked into your trolling, but as a final response on this matter, I have c4500 CDs across a wide range of music, predominantly electro and indie.

Quite simply, apart from a handful of tracks, MGMT do not float my boat. I do like Empire of the Sun, Metronomy, and loads more similar bands to MGMT, but for me the rest of their album is a bit bland. There's better stuff out there, however I concede that some of their tracks are OK (Kids, Electric Feel, Time To Pretend). and are worth my hard earned cash. As a record/cd collector I passionately hate MP3s, so would not just d/l the tracks I want.

Christ... 'it puts the lotion on its skin' kinda music....

If it's not these guys then what is the band that stomps around in Elton John looking neon Incan outfits in all their videos?

Empire of the Sun, that's it. At least they're not as bad as those plonkers.
